Interview with Dr Bill Pease about sustainability in cosmetics

In this episode, I spoke with Dr Bill Pease, currently the chief scientist for product supply chain intelligence at UL. He received his PhD in Environmental Health Sciences at the Berkeley University of California, and has had a long career evaluating sustainability layers for various products and ingredients, including in cosmetics. In our conversation together, we took a look at sustainability in cosmetics, with a focus on ingredients and packaging. We talked about the various challenges out there for green products, measuring sustainability, common misconceptions, problems with our recycling solutions today, and lots more. One of the biggest take-homes of this conversation was that all of us need to vote. Choose candidates that prioritize especially adequate waste and recycling management, but you’ll have to listen to hear more on that. Enjoy!
